We Focus on Getting Disability for Veterans Who Cannot Work.Tuesday, August 8, 2017
It takes the same amount of time to prove that a veteran is entitled to an increase of 20% to 40%, as it does to prove a vet is entitled to an increase of 20% to 100%. The reason is that the elements of proof are the same. For VA disability you must prove: 1) an event or injury in the service; 2) a current medical condition; and 3) a medical nexus between numbers 1 and 2. The medical nexus must be a medical opinion from a medical professional.
So, the elements of proof are the same for a 40% case as for a 100% case. As a result, we made the decision years ago to devote our law firm to the veterans who are the sickest and/or most injured. It has been a rewarding practice and the best way to use our law firm resources.
If you are not able to work because of your VA disability, please contact us. We can advise you on both Social Security and VA disability – – two claims that are often closely intertwined. Call us at 1-800-728-0434 or email at LifeHealth@FriedmanFirmPC.com.
